The French Army is permanently engaged on different theatres of operations. It important that their close relatives, confronted with the absence of a loved one, are supported within our units and backed up when they wish so. As of 1996, the French Army created the recruitment retraining and quality of life departments BRRCP, which constitute a proximity support for the families. The Army currently wants to improve the efficiency of the set up by developing the aid to parents and couples. This support set up comes within the scope of an approach aimed at establishing a contract between the institution, the military and hisher family. The objective of the command is to define the nature of the provided support and to be able to carry out its engagement. Thus, the Army StaffQuality of life is carrying out a reflection on the organisation of the accompaniment and the psychological and social support of the families of the military personnel when in operations outside the national territory and in short duration missions. The psychological and social support proposed to the families of military personnel deployed outside the national territory and in short duration missions participates in the operational capability and remains a priority of the military condition, fully assumed by the command and under the responsibility of the commanding officers. Indeed, the military must go to the theatre of operations knowing that hisher family will be assisted, if needed, by the military institution.
